I am an experienced retired elementary teacher (certified in Washington from the University of WA). I love children!!!! I have a daughter that has a learning disability and I tutored her throughout her entire school experience. I have also been very active in assisting in classrooms in the past.
It is important to assess each individual to discover his/her strengths and weaknesses. In addition to this evaluation, I will pay close attention to the individual's learning style/s and tutor accordingly.
It is my obligation as a tutor to establish realistic goals with my students, always taking the positive approach with every lesson, always being patient and making sure that the student is comprehending all of the material that is presented prior to moving on, and it is my desire that each student feels the sense of accomplishment.
I have been tutoring extensively for the past three years. My students are all ages and have different struggles(weaknesses) and abilities. I feel that they are all making steady progress due to my tutoring. I tutor one-on-one and small groups...depending upon the material that is being presented. Most of my tutoring is in the language arts curricula.
Words that best describe me: patient, understanding, nurturing, easy-going, organized. sensitive, knowledgeable.
